Yes, I'm starting a thread about a single. So sue me. Go listen to the song first:
Sia - Breathe Me
It's not a particularly deep song (some of the lyrics are incredibly trite), but it's been a really long time since a song has been able to take me back to a certain time and place, aside from a few other songs & the albums that I listened to incessantly during that period.
Actually, I'm not entirely sure if it's the song itself, or the story behind the song that I'm so fascinated with -- before she made a name for herself with both her solo career and with Zero 7, Sia's "first true love" was struck and killed by an errant taxi in London, which was followed by a bout of depression and heavy drinking. I can't help but feel a little close to that. Then again, with any song that you can draw any emotional attachments to, does it really matter?
But I digress. It's a good song, by a nice Australian gal, and well worth a listen.
